You know how your family has terms that you only understand, or maybe you have sayings that you use to inspire yourself and others. I realize that I do that on the show. I use terms like "mamarazzi", "mompetitor", and "mully". I say acronyms like FIDO! So, in an effort to not drive the K-LOVE receptionists crazy with questions about all my terms, I thought's I'd post a "glossary" if you will of sayings that I use, and give you an opportunity to submit yours!
Feel free to add the lingo you live by! It just might make it on the air!

On My Own. Those times you find yourself alone can be tough. Personally, my OMO time is when my kids are visiting their Dad. I call it OMO to make it positive, plus you get to carry a small purse!
Forget It and Drive On; When things are not going right, then just FIDO
